Hawkesbury trainer Garry White was hoping to pick up the rich Provincial Final with smart three-year-old Generalissimo at The Championships but had to settle for the listed South Pacific Classic.
This Saturday the focus switches to White's home track, where he'll be hoping to add more black type to Generalissimo's CV in the Hawkesbury Guineas, one of a number of features on the metro-class card, which also includes the Hawkesbury Gold Cup, the Darley Crown., the Gold Rush and the Claret Stakes.
Elsewhere, crack colt Doubt I'm Dreaming will make his second and final appearance as a two-year-old in the Redoute's Choice Stakes at Caulfield, while the SA and Queensland carnivals continue to warm up with black-type meetings at morphettville and Eagle farm respectively.
Can Generalissimo be stopped? Joel Marshalls Hawkesbury preview will lead this week's Winning Post.
Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with full form guides for the Cranbourne night meeting, plus the daytime action at Benalla and Goulburn as well as fields, colours and selections for Port Macquarie and Yeppoon.
The metro racing this Saturday is at Caulfield in Melbourne, Hawkesbury in NSW, Morphettville in Adelaide, Eagle Farm in Brisbane and Ascot in Perth.
Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Ararat (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Newcastle (NSW edition) and Mackay (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.
On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for four more TAB meetings including Tamworth Cup day plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.
Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.
Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.
Our readers have their say on page 6, while elsewhere in the paper Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Tony Kneebone brings you his Snippets column and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.
Winning Post costs $5 and is available Thursday afternoon in selected Melbourne newsagents, the crack of dawn Friday elsewhere.
